The designated Home team on the schedule will wear white (or light) jersey, the designated Away team on the schedule will wear a dark jersey. If your team only has one jersey, please contact the manager/coach of the team you are playing to decide which color they should wear.

PENALTY BOX ATTENDANTS: Each team is required to have a coach/parent in their respective penalty box to assist with opening/closing of the penalty box door, name pronunciation. Game will not start until an attendant is in the box.  

ON-SITE CHECK-IN:  There will be a registration table located at each rink.  Please make sure that all team managers visit the table prior to their first game of the tournament to receive their complimentary box of candy.

ROSTER STICKERS: Please bring "roster stickers" for the scores sheets- enough for 4, 5, or 6 games depending on your division x 3 stickers per game. MITES are excluded.

COACHES/MANAGERS:  Coaches MUST sign the score sheet after the game & take a copy for your record. 

TOURNAMENT APPAREL:  Tournament apparel will be available for sale at each main rink registration table.  Limited sizes and quantities of performance shirts and hooded sweatshirts will be available. We highly encourage you to purchase early. Any team that pre-ordered apparel may pick up their order at the rink location of their 1st game on Friday.  Please have the team manager from the team pick up the order, as it will be bagged and labeled by team.  Before leaving the table, please check each for accuracy, as we cannot guarantee size replacements one you leave.

They will have tables set-up at Twin Ponds East and Klick Lewis Arena to view and purchase in-game photos on the spot. "TEAM" photo discs are also available for the tournament.
